Man put on $100 bond for placing poison in sugar
SYDNEY, Friday. —
A man who placed poison in a bottle to catch a workmate who had stolen his sugar was released on a $100 bond today.
Mr Brian Bernard Theodore Haake, 28, storeman and packer, of Green Valley, appeared for sentence before Judge Robson in Sydney Quarter Sessions.
He pleaded guilty to maliciously causing poison to be taken with intent to annoy on March 28 at Botany.
Detective-Sergeant J. Gandy said Mr Haake worked for Australian Wool and Hide Pty Ltd. He had had things stolen from his locker over a period, including clothing and sugar.
When Mr Haake had found his sugar was missing, he had got some from a fellow worker and had put in it half a teaspoonful of sodium arsenate.
He had put it in his locker and a fellow worker had later used it in his tea.
The fellow worker had become ill and had spent four days in hospital and had then been off work for two weeks.
Judge Robson said the charge was unusual, and he was satisfied that Mr Haake had intended to annoy but not to cause harm.
